Real Madrid faces a couple of quiet weeks ahead of the Champions League final in Paris. Carlo Ancelotti's men, with their homework done after winning the League title, are going through the domestic championship managing their efforts and practically training with their opponents and the public. Quite the opposite of what happens to his rival at the Stade de France on May 18.
Liverpool, apart from the next final fight for the continental throne, is involved in all the battles in the final stretch of the season. This Saturday in the FA Cup against Chelsea and in the last days of the Premier League in an exciting pulse with Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.
Liverpool's medical services jumped onto the field of play to help their footballer who, shaken, did not stop shaking his head in denial. Finally he had to leave the field after receiving a heartfelt hug from his coach, Jürgen Klopp, who sees one of the key pieces of his team in danger.
Everything points to a muscle injury and we will have to wait to know its exact extent, but the mishap is bad news for the 'reds', who could lose their great star in Paris, or at least see it diminished in the face of the confrontation with the Real Madrid.
After qualifying for the final, Salah had repeated on several occasions his preference for the whites as rivals, and had shared his spirit of revenge after the final that Zidane and his team beat Liverpool in kyiv in 2018.
